Displaying a progress of a long process in the program-icon on the taskbar

When a long process is running and the user wants to spend his time on something different, rather than your programm, how does he or she know, whether the process has finished or is still active?

Maybe you have seen it before in other programs, like Firefox.

Graham Dawson wrote an example using a Windows-API call, where he demonstrates such progressbars in different kinds of manners, including the display of an error.

Here you find the example zipped, complete with all source and a working EXE.
